VHF Radio for boaters DSC SRC (short range course)

Boaters, both owners and also occasional charterers, need to be able to use the VHF radio for general communication and especially for issues of safety. The modern VHF DSC system is invaluable.
The course objectives are to train you to be able to use different radios in both normal and emergency situations; to communicate clearly and correctly bearing in mind you may be speaking to a foreign radio operator; to understand the benefits of the GMDSS (global maritime distress and safety system) and associated equipment, EPIRB, AIS, NAVTEX; to Send or Relay Mayday alarm; and of course to attain your RYA/MCA radio licence.
